Royal Canadian Navy

HMCS YORK has two missions. First and foremost is Force Generation; to recruit and train personnel in support of the Naval Reserve's mission to crew the Kingston Class coastal defence vessels and to provide personnel for Port Security and Naval Control and Guidance to Shipping (NCAGS) tasks. Several of our officers and sailors have been deployed to the coasts and to Ottawa, as part of the Canadian Forces operations related to Canada's contribution to the campaign against terrorism. YORK's second mission is to enhance the Navy's presence in the Toronto area.
